This lovely graph shows the average age of death of Male and Female musicians by music genre. It has really interesting insights.
Did you imagine Gospel would be lower than Country (or Jazz)? World Music seems to have long lived female musicians.
Any student of correlation-causation will look at this carefully to separate out if the music is the cause or a certain type of personality that takes to that type of music or the environmental variables at play. Lots of interesting things to think about! (Murder accounts of 6% of all deaths in the sample, but was the cause of 51% of the deaths in rap musicians to date.)
